They say the second time you fall in love with your husband is when you see how much he loves your child
But for a lucky few in my sisterhood of special needs mums there is a third time ..
The time when you find out your child is on a different developmental trajectory than you thought he was on
And your husband still adores him just the same
Never once talks about ( or even thinks about ) the football, the cricket , the boarding school etc that he was "meant" to go to .
Is still cheerfully teaching him how to throw a ball ( for R simply cannot do that yet ) ; shaking his head ruefully saying " isn't it strange how he can add and subtract but not throw a ball "
Anybody can become a Dad,
But it takes a real man to be a great Special needs Dad
I am glad that man is mine
Happy Father's day to a fantastic father
I hope all the wonderful fathers I know including my father, the man I married, the Mr Daddy's of this world and the other wonderful special needs Dads I know- had a lovely Father's day this week
Hartley is celebrating Fathers this month in her blog
To visit Hartley at her blog carnival and meet other families that talk about their lives go here at Hartley's boys

My dear friends A friend recently told me that I should write shorter and more frequent posts. As a reader, he said that he would like to...
Is it any wonder I adore you?
You manage to capture gratefulness in every post and that picture is simply priceless.
On top of being incredible parents to an amazing boy... did you ever think you'd make such a stinkin' cute one?!?! Because that expression just makes me want to scoop him up for myself! :)
What you have said is so very true. And I can attest to it from the other side (being the special kid myself with a dad who loved me).
Truly - there is nothing more important he can do for R than to love you like he does.
Happy Father's Day!
Could you please tell me how one might email you? (if possible)

What a sweet image, I see admiration for each other in both of their eyes.
You have beautiful strong men in your life K and you truly are blessed!
How sweet. My husband too truly accepts my little guy as he is. R is so lucky to have you both!!
that was Beautiful
This is so sweet - I tear up thinking how wonderful your husband must be. You're so lucky to have such a wonderful man (and little boy) in your life.
"They say the second time you fall in love with your husband is when you see how much he loves your child" SO true! Great picture! Have a great weekend!
What a beautiful post! You have an adorable family! I, fortunately am in the same boat as you and have a wonderful husband who loves our children despite any disabilities they face. We are both very lucky women! :)
Such a beautiful picture of a beautiful relationship.
Oh, just beautiful and so true. I can see how proud he is to be R's daddy.
PS - #1 was Come On Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners!
Perfectly said. Some husbands run and hide, but it sounds like you and I were both lucky to have married the superheroes.
Thank you for sharing.
That was a beautiful post. And so true. I just love that photo -- it just radiates love!
So very true :)
What a great tribute to your DH. I love the picture!
Again, I smile and love your point of view. That is such a precious capture...tickles my heart.
What a beautiful picture! You can see all of the love that's there. Your little one has a fabulous dad!
This was a great post to read. Thank you for sharing.
I read your post and immediately thought of my husband and 11yo son. My husband trys to teach him to throw, but my son just doesn't get it. I'm always amazed at how patient my husband is with him.
Nice post, kind of drawn out though. Really good subject matter though.
